In the standalone mode option, users invoke the CLI (
tadm) from a command shell by specifying the command, options, and operands. Once the command is executed, the CLI exits to the shell. For more information, see help.
$tadm create-config --user=admin --password-file=./admin.pwd --listener-port=2222 --server-name=syrinx myconfig
CLI201 Command 'create-config' ran successfully.
In the shell mode option, users invoke CLI (
tadm) from a command shell by not entering the command. The CLI prompts users to enter a command. Once the command is executed, the control returns to the
tadm shell. The shell can be exited by typing
quit command. For more information, see help.
$tadm --user=admin --password-file=./admin.pwd --host=admin.example.com --port=8989 OTD 1.0 B06/07/2011 09:40 tadm> list-configs www.example.com soa.example.org tadm> exit $

User name and password must be used in accordance with the policies that are defined in Oracle Traffic Director application. While performing multiple tasks in the CLI, user name and password must be used in the following combinations:
The user name and password must be entered for each user command running in a standalone mode.
$tadm list-configs --user=admin --password-file=./admin.pwd --host=admin.example.com --port=8888
While performing tasks in the shell mode, user name and password file are accepted when
tadm executable is invoked. The user name and password file options may not be entered while the user commands are invoked in the shell mode.
$tadm --user=admin --host=admin.example.com --port=8888 Enter the password> tadm>
Oracle recommends that the password file be provided in read-only mode to the administrator and not stored on NFS or a shared disk. The contents of the password file must be provided as
The password file can contain multiple passwords. For example,

tadm feature. The Tab key must be pressed twice to autocomplete
tadm commands and their options. For

tadm shell will list the available options of a particular command. If you type "--c" and press the Tab key twice, the
tadm shell will attempt to complete the option if there are no other options starting with c. If there are any options, they will be listed.
$ tadm $ tadm p<tab><tab> $ tadm pull-config
